LA FÊTE DE L’INSIGNIFIANCE , de Milan Kundera,

« Jeter une lumière sur les problèmes les plus serieux et en même temps ne pas prononcer une seule phrase sérieuse, être fasciné par la réalité du monde contemporaine et en même temps éviter tout réalisme. »

Ce que nous avons lu sur la 4e de la couverture du livre LA FÊTE DE L’INSIGNIFIANCE , de Milan Kundera, exprime si bien le type de livres qu’on aimerait publier chez #editionshashtag.

 

Tsundoku: The practice of buying more books than you can read

https://www.treehugger.com/cleaning-organizing/tsundoku-practice-buying-more-books-you-can-read.html

The Japanese word describes piling up books to save for later … even if you’ll never actually read them.

« Even when reading is impossible, the presence of books acquired produces such an ecstasy that the buying of more books than one can read is nothing less than the soul reaching towards infinity. » – A. Edward Newton, author, publisher, and collector of 10,000 books.

Are you one of us? A master of tsundoku? Mine takes the shape of the aspirational stack by my bedside table – because I am going to read every night before bed, of course, and upon waking on the weekends. Hahaha. My tsundoku also takes shape in cookbooks … even though I rarely cook from recipes. And I think I most fervently practice tsundoku when I buy three or four novels to pile in my suitcase for a five-day vacation. Sometimes not even one sees its spine cracked.
